Glimmer Birthday Cards

Hi all. Am popping in to share a couple birthday cards featuring the new hot foiled sentiments from Spellbinders. First up is this shaker card featuring Glimmering Poppin' Birthday Hot Foil Plate together with the big balloon die from Spellbinder's May Glimmer Club kit.



I enjoy making shaker card, especially a festive one. I also embellish the card with a couple candles from So Many Candles Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. Gotta love it when several sets work together. :)

For my second card I am showcasing Glimmering Hooray Hot Foil Plate. For the background I used So Many Candles Glimmer Hot Foil Plates with Mini Rainbow Hot Foil. With the rainbow colored candles, I don't feel the need to color the candles. Let those rainbow shine!



 
Time to get back on the craft table. Am really looking forward to get some crafting done this weekend as it is too hot to do any outdoor activity in Houston. Well, you could, I just don't want to. Hah!! Have a wonderful weekend all.

Mandala Blooms

Hi friends. Today I am sharing a couple cards I made using the new release Spellbinders Mandala Blooms 3D Embossing folder. This pattern is so pretty and seriously it doesn't need much to make it stand out. For my 1st card, once I embossed the panel, I ink blended various blue ink on it. 



To finish simply added a hot foiled sentiment from More Sentiments Hot Foil. I also used this set for my second card. If you been following my blog for a while you see that I used this set a lot. 

For my next card, once I embossed the panel, I colored some of the raised part with Copic marker. Another way to add color to the panel. Here, I paired it with the pretty butterfly from Brilliant Butterflies Etched die.



 
I have to say the result from 3D embossing folder really is beautiful. You don't even have to color it if you don't want to. Well peeps, that's all I got for today. May your weekend starts off wonderfully.

House Mouse Cards

Hi friends. Today I am back to share some cards featuring sets from the House Mouse collection. Am pretty happy to work with this collection since I do miss playing with critter sets. First up is this Daisy Mouse cutie. Daisies will always have special place in my heart, cause after all it's one of the flower I chose to use in my wedding bouquet.




For the card base I used the largest arch die from Essential Arches Etched Dies set. I cut the base and then a panel with the die where I stamped the image on. Ink blended some green on the bottom, color the image and I added a strip of metallic cardstock to create the look of globe. Finished with some enamel drops and sentiment from Yana's Layered Script Sentiments and stamped sentiment from Many Birthdays set,

On to the next card, featuring Spring Rain set, This one pretty straight forward. I simply stamped and colored the image. 



And, last but not least is my 3rd card showcasing this sweet  Bouquet For You set. I followed the design on my 1st card as I really love the arch shape card.
 



I had lots of fun making these 3 cards as it really been a while since I play with any critter sets. Hope you enjoy today's card and I wish you all a lovely day.

Spellbinders' June Club Kits

Hi friends. Happy month of June. I love June, cause after all it's my birthday month. So, a bit of favoritism there. I just got back from a 10 day trip to Berlin & Barcelona and getting back on the swing of things. With the beginning of a new month, that means it's time to celebrate Spellbinders' monthly kit.

First up is my card showcasing Spellbinders' June Stitching Die Club kit. This seashells set is perfect to make fun, summer birthday card and the stitching add that extra touch.



On this card I used More Sentiments Hot Foil and Yana's Layered Script Sentiments. Finished by adding some rhinestones.

My next card is featuring Spellbinder's June Glimmer Club kit. I really wish I have the Large Die Club kit for June as it would have been perfect for this card (trust me, you want this June Large Die Club Kit). Since I don't have it, I decided to just stick with the pretty, glimmering waves.
 

Finally, my 3rd and last card am using Spellbinders June Embossing Club Kit.




This is such a gorgeous pattern. I simply blended three different blue shades of ink on the panel before embossing the panel and then blended some more ink as well afterward. For the sentiment I used Be Bold Lowercase & Number Etched Dies set to spell the word hello and finish by adding the sentiment sticker with the word beautiful and butterflies from Dimensional Butterfly Stickers set.

Well, that's all I have for today peeps. Hope you enjoy today's cards and may you find some time get crafty this weekend. Have a wonderful weekend!
